Whether they specialize in cloud, mobile backhaul, content or traditional services, network operators are constantly looking to grow their networks, increase bandwidth and cut their cost-per-bit. Many are turning to the advanced capacity and capabilities of 100G to optimize their existing networks while enabling the delivery of new high-value services.
Service providers are having to respond quickly to explosive bandwidth growth driven by an exponential increase in the use of mobile devices for streaming video applications, and the growing demand for cloud based services. Today’s standard network currency is 10G, but demand is outstripping the capacity available over existing 10G infrastructure and operators are seeking ways to rapidly meet the expectations of the market while keeping their costs low.
It’s not big news that new applications, services and exponential uptake in mobile devices are driving explosive bandwidth growth. Clearly, existing networks need to scale to meet these demands. However, it’s not just about building bigger networks: it’s about scaling these networks in a way that delivers the required capacity in the most efficient manner, where services can be rapidly deployed and are simple to manage.
Optelian’s MPX-9110 platform provides comprehensive capabilities to dramatically boost network capacity while reducing cost-per-bit. Configurable as either a muxponder or transponder, the
MPX-9110 can aggregate and transport any mix of 10 Gb/s, 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s services over a 100 Gb/s OTN DWDM wavelength.
